A WOMAN who incited a boy under the age of 15 to engage in sexual activity is due to be sentenced on September 26.
Louise Mitchell, 37, from Cross Keys, appeared before Cwmbran Magistrates Court today for sentencing, but the case was adjourned as the district judge due to sentence her was not present.
Last month Caerphilly magistrates court heard how the defendant, who pleaded guilty to the charge, consumed four or five cans of Strongbow before other adults went upstairs to bed, leaving the defendant with the victim.
They began kissing on the sofa, before moving into a spooning position with the victim behind her and his arm wrapped around her waist, with him becoming sexually aroused.
The court were read police interviews, during which the defendant states that “there was no sex, there was cwtching.”
In the interview, Mitchell said that the pair were both wearing clothes and that she knew that she shouldn’t have been cwtching him because of his age.
During interview she described the kissing as pecks on the cheek and not passionate, and said she didn’t think of him in a sexual way.
Mitchell was released on conditional bail, to comply with probation, and will appear before Cwmbran magistrates court on September 26.
